Hi all,

I'm in the process of replacing a old Kerio Connect Server Running Version 7.2.4 on Mac OS X 10.6.8. It will be replaced with a new mac running OS X 10.11 and the latest version of Kerio Connect.

My plan is as follows:
  • Upgrade the current Installation on 10.6.8 to 8.5.3
  • Install 8.5.3 on the new Machine
  • Copy the Mail Store to the new Machine
  • Upgrade the new Machine to the latest Version of Kerio Connect.

These are my Questions:
  • Is there a smarter way to to the Migration? Would you do it differently?
  • What steps should i take when upgrading? Directly from 7.2.4 to 8.5.3 an then directly to the latest Version? Or are there important steps in-between?

Thanks for your Input.

Between 7.2 and 8.5 are 8 major version (if I count well). It's better to upgrade to last 7.x version and then to 8.x.

IMHO your migration to new server is OK. If you are familiar with rsync, I used it for this purposes, it minimalize the outage and allow me prepare "copy" of server and test it before final switch.

There exists official article about migration to another server:

Thanks for your input. Ok, i will upgrade to the latest 7.x first and then to 8.5.3. I plan to use rsync to transfer the Files and test the migration. Thanks.
